Violation of labour law

Labour inspectorates of county government offices

Labour inspectorates acting in the county’s government offices – with the exceptions of the legality of labour relation termination and compensation cases – can essentially inspect every compliance of labour law, and in case of violation, they can impose a fine on the offending employer.

Labour authorities themselves decide if they begin a procedure in a given case. Statements can be anonymous, but it is important to be exactly definable against which employer the complaint was made (name, seat), and what the assumed violation is.

If the employee demands financial compensation, turn to the county’s administrative and labour courts.
